Additional feature

The app works great. Would love a notification when tentacle box's battery runs low and when cable got unplugged from camera. Would it be possible ? Would be pretty cool

Decent results with Tentacle Sync Studio

This system works quite well in conjunction with the official Tentacle Sync Studio software for Mac OS. However, I have not been able to get accurate syncs using the audio timecode features in Premiere or Resolve.

Doesn’t Show correct TC

For some reason I have to download and reinstall the app each time I use my Tentacle or else the TC is off by a second. Thinking about selling my Tentacle for an Ambient unless there’s a fix.
